UNION

Edgar Nelson Rhodes (Speaker of the House of Commons)

Unionist

Mr. SPEAKER:

Order. I must ask hon. members not to abuse the privilege which allows questions on urgent matters to be put before the Orders of the Day are called. Quite frequently questions are put which should more properly go on the Order paper in the ordinary course, so that the Government may have notice of them. There can be no objection to an important question regarding a matter of policy. But matters dealing with individual eases should not be brought up on the Orders of the Day.

Topic:   QUESTIONS.
Subtopic:   MILITARY SERVICE ACT.
